    You can probably replace just the lock cylinder itself and not the entire ignition assembly....the key may not come out at all but you can try spraying some graphite lube in it and wait for a while then see if you can remove the key. Here you go on the procedure http://www.ehow.com/how_7688815_repair-lock-cylinder-2002-alero.html
